A mural of musician Leonard Cohen is seen on a building on November 7, 2017 in downtown Montreal. Leonard Cohen's songs strived for the universal and his voice was often solemn, yet the courtly songwriter had plentiful moments of joy and deadpan humor. One year after Cohen died at age 82, an array of artists testified to his far-reaching impact with a concert the evening on November 6, 2017 whose somber yet graceful tone befitted the celebrated singer and poet. Before more than 21,000 people at the Bell Centre arena in Cohen's native Montreal, the tribute built around short videos of his well-traveled life which included years of artistic retreat on the Greek island of Hydra and a late-age stint as a Buddhist monk in California. / AFP PHOTO / Marc BRAIBANT

andré mandou pra gente (ou “o maior de todos”)…

Assunto: Se foi o maior de todos
“Salve, MauVal,

2016, não satisfeito em sapecar Bowie, nos devolver ares de 1964, meter na “capital do mundo” um palhaço conservador e nos entregar um prefeito que tem a pachorra de fazer parte do clube dos atuais donos do Rainbow Theatre, agora nos leva ele, o maior de todos. Sim, digo isso sem medo de ser hiperbólico quando me refiro aquele senhor canadense cuja obra chegou aos meus ouvidos há mais ou menos 20 anos e se tornou parte de mim. Leonard Cohen, talvez o único artista até há pouco vivo que me fazia lamentar profundamente nunca ter visto ao vivo, subiu a serra.
Fica aqui meu pedido encarecido para o #206. Poderia sugerir qualquer canção dele. No entanto, deixo apenas esse videozinho animado que fiz em 2001 em cima de de “one of us cannot be wrong”, quando engatinhava na minha vida como animador. O videoclipe é bem tosquinho, mas qualquer homenagem agora é válida.
Forte abraço,”
André
